House Takes Up 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'; Senate Eyes START

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

As this Congress's lame duck period winds on, the last Democratic priorities come to the chambers' floors for consideration. With guarded encouragement from Senate centrists, the House of Representatives plans to take up a simple bill to repeal the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy, while the Senate considers confirming the START agreement with Russia. Todd Zwillich joins us to talk about the chances of these bills in the House and Senate.

the dont ask dont tell argument is a joke.... either way there is gays in the military, the least they can do is be open about it. why we are accepting liars into the US army to the defend the country i dont know. its not like they are looking at a gun and thinking ''oo that looks a bit phallic''. Get over it bigots. Have a sense of pride: http://davidhatton1987.blogspot.com/2010/08/pride-festival-2010.html
